Fat doesn't make you fat (Or: Why I'm angry at Burger King)

Burger King made big news recently with the announcement of its latest product: Satisfries.

The company claims that the new style french fries have "one-third the fat and 20 percent fewer calories."  I am so weary of the low-fat craze. The carb content is nearly the same as regular fries (small Satisfries has 41; small regular has 49) and....guess what? That's where the actual problem is! FAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU FAT. CARBS MAKE YOU FAT. *headdesk*

Don't believe that carbs are more evil than fat? Read this article or this one.

And this article on sparkpeople explores the idea of whether or not Satisfries are "healthy."
